Agadoo, I do do do! Black Lace singer Dene Michael dances down the aisle with new wife listening to cheesy 1984 track
20:37 GMT, 8 June 2012
He wasn't part of the band when the song Agadoo reached number two in the UK singles chart.
But Black Lace singer Dene Michael clearly can't get enough of the song, so much so he walked down the aisle with his new wife listening to the track.
The 55-year-old singer, who was dressed in a pair of white trousers and a Hawaiian shirt, and Karen spent their first few moments as man and wife listening to the 1984 hit.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO…
Conga crazy! Black Lace singer Dene Michael and his new bride formed a conga line as they left Leeds Town Hall following their wedding today
And the fun certainly didn't end there
as the couple then led their guests in a line while Do The Conga played
out at Leeds Town Hall today.
The pair certainly put all their effort into the dance and the bizarre action certainly had their guests in fits of laughter.
Karen looked lovely in her strapless wedding gown and had a purple flower to match Dene's shirt in her hair.
Former Coronation Street star Bruce
Jones as among the guests at the wedding and he was seen putting plenty
of effort into the conga line.
Bruce, who played Les Battersby in the soap directed a video for the 2009 re-release of Agadoo.
Speaking after the colourful ceremony
the cheesy 80s popster said: 'Both Karen and I have been married before
so we thought we should mark this occasion a little differently.
What a hoot: The happy couple were seen leaving Leeds town hall with huge smiles on their faces
Do do do: Dene was seen punching the air as Agadoo was played after he wed Karen
'We didn't want the traditional wedding. It started off as a joke really, we laughed about having a Hawaiian-themed do. But we both wanted it to be a fun day, one for all our friends to enjoy, so we decide this was a perfect idea.
'Karen and I wanted to have a laugh so we danced down the aisle to Agadoo, she loves the song so it's a great choice. And then we played the conga for us all to conga out of the room to the reception.'
The post wedding bash was held at Black Swan, near Dene's home in Barwick in Elmet,
West Yorkshire where he and Ian performed to the crowd.
Big smiles: Dene dressed in a purple and white Hawaiian shirt and white trousers while Karen stuck to a wedding dress
Legs high in the air! The rain didn't put a dampener on the couple's spirits and they ere seen beaming as they left the building
It's our Les! Former Coronation Street star Bruce Jones attended the wedding
But they included a mix of music with plenty of Take That – receptionist Karen's favourite.
Dene has been with bride mum-of-four Karen for just over three years after they
met in Benidorm.
The father-of-four said: 'She didn't
know who I was at first, which was quite nice actually. But she did a
bit of digging and found out – and luckily she was a fan of our music.'
Dene is still touring with Black Lace and will appear at the Beat Harder
festival in Lancashire this summer.
He has also recorded a solo single called Life Force.
Dene wasn't actually part of Black Lace when either Do The Conga or Agadoo were first released.
He joined founding member Alan Barton in 1986 and sang on songs I Am The Music Man and Wig Wham Bam.
However Dene has failed to emulate the earlier success enjoyed by the band and he now performs with Ian Robinson.
In 2000 Dot Music named Agadoo the fourth most annoying song of all time.
It was subsequently re-released in 2007 and then again in 2009.
The song was originally recorded in French by Michel Delancray and Mya Symille in 1971.
